With Trae Young moving on to the NBA, Oklahoma has become a defensive team and has held its opponent to 60 points or fewer in three of the last four, including North Texas in a 73-57 win on Nov. 27. “When we defend like that and we have that stretch in the second half where we lock in defensively and stop, score, stop, score – I don’t know if (there are) too many teams in the country that can play 40 minutes with us,” senior guard Miles Reynolds told reporters after the game. Notre Dame earned its fourth consecutive win on Wednesday – a 76-74 victory over Illinois as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge – as Juwan Durham had what coach Mike Brey called a “coming-out party.” Durham had a career-high 10 points and added five blocks – all in the second half – as the 6-11 sophomore was leaned on more than usual after teammate John Mooney fouled out early.

TV: 7 p.m. ET, ESPN

ABOUT OKLAHOMA (6-1): Reynolds had a team-high 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting in 31 minutes off the bench versus North Texas. Christian James had nine – his lowest output of the season – but leads the team with 19.1 points per game and is the only Sooners player averaging more than 10. Oklahoma held the Mean Green, a team shooting 48 percent on the season, to 27.5 percent from the floor and are ranked 19th in the nation in field-goal percentage defense (37.1) on the season.

ABOUT NOTRE DAME (6-1): Guards T.J. Gibbs and D.J. Harvey both notched season highs with 19 points, with Gibbs pushing his team-leading scoring average to 13.7 points and Harvey edging his season average into double-digits at 10. Freshman point guard Prentiss Hubb added 10 points and has reached double figures in scoring in four straight, surpassing the 30-minutes played mark in each of those games as continues to be a key contributor in Notre Dame’s youth movement. Mooney, the ACC’s leader in double-doubles with three, played just 10 minutes against Illinois because of foul trouble – his lowest mark of the season.

TIP-INS

1. Tuesday marks the first meeting between these two schools.

2. The Sooners made just 17-of-33 free throws against North Texas and are shooting 65.8 percent from the free-throw line on the season.

3. This is Notre Dame’s first game away from home in 2018-19.

Preview: Texas vs. Oklahoma

Lincoln Riley’s dynamic offense at Oklahoma has consistently been explosive enough this season to make up for one of the worst defenses in the country, but Texas knows all about the one time it wasn’t. The fifth-ranked Sooners hope to avenge their only loss of the season and impress the College Football Playoff committee enough to move up from the No. 5 spot in the CFP rankings when they meet No. 9 Texas on Saturday in the Big 12 Championship Game at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.

To play this game at FanPicks…click here

Oklahoma, which leads FBS in scoring (50.3 points) and total offense (583.8 yards), finished the regular season on a six-game winning streak despite surrendering 47.3 points per game in its last four contests – and at least 40 points in each contest – by averaging 53.3. The Sooners have failed to score at least 48 points in only three games, the last of which came on Oct. 6 when Oklahoma needed less than six minutes in the fourth quarter to erase a 21-point deficit before the Longhorns got a game-winning 40-yard field goal from freshman Cameron Dicker as time expired for a 48-45 victory. Texas has been living on the edge for most of the season, playing all but one of its last eight opponents within one score and winning six of them. The Longhorns are making their sixth Big 12 Championship appearance and first since 2009, while the Sooners are seeking their fourth consecutive conference crown and a ninth championship win in 18 league title games.

TV: Noon ET, ABC. LINE: Oklahoma -8

ABOUT TEXAS (9-3): Sam Ehlinger, who produced 386 yards of total offense and five total touchdowns in the first meeting, is responsible for the two highest total offense outputs by a Longhorn quarterback in the 113-game history of this rivalry (388 last season) but has been playing through a shoulder injury since Oct. 13. Lil’Jordan Humphrey (72 catches, 1,058 receiving yards and eight TDs) and Collin Johnson (57, 768, six) are one of only 14 duos in FBS with at least 55 catches, and Humphrey is only the fifth player in school history with at least 1,000 yards and eight receiving TDs in a season. Dicker’s 34-yard field goal against the Jayhawks tied him with Dusty Magnum (16; 2001) for the most made field goals ever by a Texas freshman.

ABOUT OKLAHOMA (11-1): Heisman Trophy candidate Kyler Murray is the first player in FBS history to average at least 300 passing yards (306.2) and 60 rushing yards (71.1) for an entire regular season and leads an offense that is the first in FBS history to record at least 500 yards of total offense in nine regular-season games. With Trey Sirmon (shoulder) still limited due to injury, freshman Kennedy Brooks took over the team lead in rushing with 993 yards and boasts an FBS-best 9.6 yards per carry (minimum five rushing attempts per game). Since returning to full strength prior to the Oklahoma State victory on Nov. 10, junior receiver Marquise Brown has caught 25 passes for 450 yards and three TDs.

EXTRA POINTS

1. This game marks the second in-season rematch between the arch-rivals and first since 1903.

2. Oklahoma’s eight-game streak of scoring at least 45 points is tied for the longest among FBS teams since at least 1980.

3. The Longhorns, who are the only school in the Big 12 with a winning record against the Sooners (62-46-5), are 6-3 in one-possession games this season.

Preview: Oklahoma at West Virginia

Less than one week after losing whatever chance it had to make the College Football Playoff, West Virginia can strike a similar blow to Oklahoma by beating the Sooners for the first time since becoming conference rivals in 2012. The 12th-ranked Mountaineers will attempt to end their recent struggles against No. 6 Oklahoma when the two meet in Morgantown, W. Va. on Friday in what likely amounts to a Big 12 Championship play-in game.

To play this game at FanPicks…click here

West Virginia surrendered a go-ahead touchdown with 42 seconds remaining last weekend to drop a 45-41 decision at Oklahoma State, falling into a second-place tie with Texas in the conference standings. The Mountaineers and Longhorns still control their destiny in regards to the conference title game, however, as a West Virginia victory against the Sooners would forge a three-way tie for first – in the likely event Texas beats Kansas earlier in the day – and send them to Arlington, Tex. due to head-to-head wins over Oklahoma. The Sooners only need to post their seventh consecutive win over the Mountaineers to assure themselves of a spot in the Big 12 Championship and keep their hopes of receiving a second straight College Football Playoff invitation alive. Oklahoma is coming off an uninspiring 55-40 home victory over the three-win Jayhawks, allowing 524 yards to an offense that had not gained more than 368 during conference play.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, ESPN. LINE: Oklahoma -1.5.

ABOUT OKLAHOMA (10-1, 7-1 Big 12): Heisman Trophy hopeful Kyler Murray is still on pace to become the first FBS player ever to average at least 300 passing yards and 60 rushing yards for an entire season, despite throwing for 272 and rushing for 99 while also accounting for five touchdowns versus the Jayhawks. After leading rusher Trey Sirmon (851 rushing yards) was injured on his first carry of the game, freshman Kennedy Brooks (811) took over for a second straight outing, running for a season-high 171 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries. Marquise Brown recorded 65 receiving yards against Kansas to push him over 1,000 for the second straight season; his 2,116 receiving yards are the most ever for a Sooner through his first 24 career games.

ABOUT WEST VIRGINIA (8-2, 6-2): Heisman Trophy candidate Will Grier threw for 364 yards versus the Cowboys to post his school-record 18th career 300-yard passing game and boosted his career completion total to 484, passing Oliver Luck (1978-81) for fifth place in program history. Kennedy McKoy ran for a career-high 148 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries, scoring two touchdowns in the second straight game and becoming the third Mountaineer to run for at least 100 yards in a game this season. Senior receiver David Sills V caught at least one touchdown pass for a sixth straight contest and is tied for second in FBS with a Big-12 best 13 receiving scores; his 33 career TD receptions rank as the third most in school history.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Oklahoma has won 19 consecutive true road games – 11 more than the next-longest active streak in FBS.

2. Sills (13) and Gary Jennings Jr. (11) are the only pair of teammates in FBS with at least 10 receiving touchdowns.

3. The Sooners are the only team the Mountaineers have not beaten since joining the Big 12.

NCAA Basketball Final Four preview

Villanova Wildcats vs Oklahoma Sooners

Buddy Hield’s Oklahoma Sooners are one game away from the national championship and will face the Oklahoma Sooners in a matchup featuring 2 of the best College Basketball programs in the nation for this Final Four. Houston’s NRG Stadium will host this matchup highly anticipated matchup Saturday. FanPicks is proud to bring you this NCAA Basketball Final Four preview. Come enjoy our March Madness Fantasy contests at Fanpicks with over 5 MILLION dollars in prizes for the NCAA TOURNAMENT.

NCAA BASKETBALL Final Four

Buddy Hield really made this NCAA March Madness Tournament into a personal highlight reel and the stage will get bigger tonight when he will lead the Sooners to their 1st Final Four in 14 years against the Villanova Wildcats in Houston. Hield, scored 37 points in the Elite 8 victory over Oregon last weekend, and currently averages 29.3 pts  with a 56.7 shooting percentage this NCAA tournament.

 

The Wildcats’ coach Jay Wright knows the threat Hield poses for his team and is well aware that the Sooners will have a sixth man with the crowd, as Oklahoma’s campus isn’t so far from Houston. But after kicking the nation’s # 1 team Kansas last week, he feels his squad heads into this game with extreme confidence. The two teams already met earlier this season but it was another story as some of their players were very inexperienced and struggled from the field. Their starters combined for 1 of 16 from the 3 pt range however have a 42.6 percent from beyond the arc in the tournament. We were an inexperienced team and it really showed, so I think we are a much more experienced team now.” That trio combined to go 1-of-16 from 3-point range against Oklahoma, but have posted a collective 42.6 percent mark from beyond the arc in the tournament.

 

On the Sooners side, Buddy Hield should have a tremendous game and will be helped by guard Jordan Woodard. Woodard is averaging 16.8 pts per game while Cousins has been struggling with only 13 pts in the past 2 games. With Hield hitting the triples against Oregon and taking at least 10 shots beyond the arc. The Wildcats will definitely need to be on their game early since the Sooners have outscored their opponents by 14.3 on average in the 1st half.

NFL Draft

Top 10 WRs

With the NFL Draft now less than a month away, I present to you my first edition of my top 10 positional rankings.

You will notice I have 12 players listed here, but that’s just in honor of the depth this draft class possesses at the receiver position. While there are no Calvin Johnson’s or Julio Jones’ in this group, there are more than a handful of legitimate prospects with the potential to become impact players at the next level.

Laquon Treadwell is the consensus number one, and though many will point to his stop watch time (4.65) with doubt, it’s his fluidity and game tape that put him in pole position.

topwrsdraft

Baylor’s Corey Coleman has been under heavy scrutiny for his apparent lack of overall skills. He ran a limited route-tree in college, so word of bad route-running and only possessing straight-line speed has surfaced. He also has drop issues, especially in the middle of the field. He ran a 4.37 at his Pro Day and scored 20 TDs through the first eight games of the 2015 season, so going deep is no issue. The issue is that he didn’t score any in the next four games and never came close to 100 yards again. If college teams can figure out how to shut him down, NFL defenses will without breaking a sweat. But if he lands with the right team, those same defenses will be sweating just watching the film on him.

Will Fuller also has the speed (4.32) but as one scout and former NFL receiver said “I hear the DeSean Jackson comparison and I can’t get there. DeSean was faster, tougher and more reliable than Fuller. I’m not saying Fuller can’t play, but I don’t think he’s DeSean.”

Josh Doctson is of a different mold. More of a possession type receiver with the ability to go up and snag the ball out of the air. The Minnesota Vikings seem really interested in what TCU product has to offer, as would he be a great compliment to their young receiving core. An immediate starting job on the outside seems to be in Doctson’s future.

Sterling Shepard rounds out my top five (for this edition anyway). The Sooner may leave something to be desired in terms of measurements, but definitely leaves nothing on the field in terms of effort. The 5’10 slot man not only comes with a ferocious hunger to make plays, but the talent to execute them. I see shades of Steve Smith all over this one.

Elite 8

#2 Oklahoma vs #1 Oregon Recap

oklvsoregscore

 

Oklahoma is off to the Final Four for the first time since 2002.

Buddy Hield dropped 37 points in a Steph Curry like performance to send Oregon home from March Madness. Oh yeah, and he did it just to impress Kobe Bryant. As Hield said after the game “As soon as I saw Kobe was here, I knew I had to put on a show.”

He followed that up with “It was special man, I can’t tell you how special… A guy you really looked up to growing up. You don’t get that everyday…It’s kind of special that he knows who I am now. I appreciate Kobe taking his time coming out and watching, it means so much to me.”

Isaiah Cousins had the second best fantasy basketball day with 11 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists and 1 steal, while Jordan Woodard contributed 13 points, 1 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal himself.

Oregon’s Elgin Cook dropped 24 points plus 4 assists in the loss.

#2 Oklahoma will face fellow #2 seed Villanova in their Final Four matchup to see who will win the right to compete in the March Madness championship game.

NCAA Basketball Oklahoma vs West Virginia

College Fantasy Basketball preview

 

# 3 Oklahoma Sooners will travel to Morgantown to battle # 11 West Virginia Mountaineers Saturday afternoon. FanPicks is proud to bring you this NCAA College Basketball matchup preview. Come enjoy daily College Fantasy Basketball news at Fanpicks ahead of this upcoming March Madness 2016.

 

Oklahoma Sooners are coming into this game hoping to avoid a 3rd straight loss overall. They fell to Kansas State 2 weeks ago and fell to Kansas last weekend in a heartbreaker before dropping to unranked Texas Tech 65-63. This slump and vulnerability on the road as pushed the Sooners slump to third place in the BIG 12 standings, 1 game behind the Mountaineers and 2 behind Kansas with only 5 games in the season remaining. The Sooners were outrebounded against Kansas and Kansas State as well crucial moments late in the game against Texas Tech. They’re still in the mix for the # 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament but will unfortunately play 3 or their last 5 regular season games on the road. The Sooners have lost their last 2 trips to Morgantown.

 

The last time they met, the Mountaineers’ aggressive defence forced and held the Sooners’ defense to its worst shooting performances of the season (33.3% from the field) limiting Player of the Year candidate Buddy Hield to only a 17 pts. Shutting down the 3rd ranked Sooners’ 3 guard lineup will be much harder this time if Daxter Miles Jr. and Jaysean Paige aren’t present due to injuries. West Virginia’s 18.6 turnovers per game ranks second in the country, leads the Big 12 in scoring defense (65.6) and on top of that leads the entire nation with 10.2 steals per contest. This game will be an opportunity for either team to make a statement ahead of the highly anticipate NCAA Tournament next month.

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Clemson Tigers College Football One Day League Fantasy Preview 12-31-2015

 

The college football playoffs get underway on New Year’s Eve with the Orange Bowl as the Clemson Tigers will meet the Oklahoma Sooners. Fantasy college football draft GM’s can tune to ESPN TV on Thursday December 31st at 4PM Eastern Time to track the results of their daily roster picks.

 

These teams recently met in the Russell Athletic Bowl last year with Clemson posting the 40-6 victory. The Oklahoma offense was limited to just 275 yards for the game in the loss. Clemson had trouble rushing with only 68 yards on 42 carries. Clemson is an undefeated team with a mark of 13-0. They are the 11th ranked offense from college football as they push across 510 yards per game. They throw and pass equally well. The Tigers finished at seventh in total defense as opponents posted 296 yards per game. A very good stat but the ACC conference teams did not have the dynamic offensive teams like you see in the Big 12 conference. So take a pass on Clemson’s defense.

 

Oklahoma rallied following their loss to the Texas Longhorns. The point production was very strong but many of those big wins came against questionable defensive teams. Clemson faced better defenses yet still put up some very strong offensive numbers.

 

College Football Daily Fantasy League Pick

 

Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson completed nearly 70% of his throws for 351 yards with 30 touchdowns and 11 picks. He can run the football as the sophomore signal caller had 887 rushing yards on 163 carries. Watson rushed for 5.4 yards per carry and had 11 rushing touchdowns. He had a three touchdown performance in the ACC championship game against North Carolina where he threw for 289 yards. He threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns against a good defensive team in Boston College.

Michigan St Spartans vs. Alabama Crimson Tide College Football Fantasy Preview 12-31-2015

 

The Cotton Bowl features the college football playoff game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Michigan St Spartans. DFS draft GM’s can tune to ESPN TV on Thursday December 31st at 8PM Eastern Time to track the results of their daily league scoring results.

 

Both teams enter play with a record of 12-1. The Crimson Tide suffered a loss to Mississippi a team that made a New Year’s Six Bowl in the Sugar Bowl. Michigan St dropped a 39-38 decision at Nebraska. The Michigan St Spartans were held to 16 points at Iowa and 17 points at Ohio St as they squeaked out close victories. They put up just 24 points at home to a bad Purdue and Maryland team. The Spartans were just 69th from college football in total offense with the run game ranking at 81st. Opponents had success throwing against the Michigan St defense this year as the Spartans are 73rd against the pass.

 

College Football Daily Cash Fantasy League Pick

 

The Crimson Tide is a very physical defensive team. They have been outstanding down the stretch by allowing no greater than 16 points over their past six games. The Crimson Tide is the number two defense from college football by giving up just 258 yards per game. They are number three in the nation in points against by allowing just 14.4 points per game to their opponents. The game that really stands out for Alabama is their home victory to LSU on November 7th. The Crimson Tide held Tigers running back Leonard Fournette to just 31 rushing yards on 19 carries

Fanpicks.com College Football Bowl Game Preview

CAPITAL ONE ORANGE BOWL

Clemson vs. Oklahoma

Fanpicks.com is proud to bring you the Orange Bowl game preview featuring all powerful Clemson against Oklahoma.  This bowl game will be exciting  to watch Clemson topping Oklahoma 45-40.  Play the best fantasy college football contests at Fanpicks.com

Top-ranked Clemson is the lone remaining unbeaten squad and fourth-ranked Oklahoma has reeled off seven straight victories as they enter their College Football Playoff semifinal clash in the Capital One Orange Bowl on Dec. 31 at Miami Gardens, Fla. The Tigers are bidding for their first national championship since going 12-0 in 1981, while the Sooners are chasing their first national title since going 13-0 in 2000. Oklahoma’s lone loss came to Texas on Oct. 10, while Clemson has won 16 consecutive games since losing to Georgia Tech in mid-November of the 2014 campaign.

There is no disputing the notion that the top two quarterbacks in the country are playing in this contest as Clemson sophomore Deshaun Watson finished third in the Heisman Trophy balloting and Oklahoma junior Baker Mayfield placed fourth with the top two finishers both being running back. Watson is an all-around nightmare for defensive coordinators as he has passed for 3,512 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 887 yards and 11 scores while Mayfield has passed for 3,389 yards and 35 touchdowns while rushing for 420 yards and seven scores. “I think he’s exceptional,” Sooners coach Bob Stoops told reporters of Watson. “What a great athlete – thrower, runner, everything. I really have a great respect and appreciation for what a quality player he is.”

One aspect both teams are downplaying is that Clemson put a 40-6 thumping on the Sooners in last season’s Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando, Fla. Watson missed the game with a knee injury and Oklahoma committed five turnovers and was never in the contest but Tigers coach Dabo Swinney has been insisting that nobody should be bringing up that game. “That just absolutely has nothing to do with this year,” Swinney told reporters. “They’re playing as good as anybody in the country right now, maybe the best of anybody in the country, so we know they’ll be fired up to play us.”

OKLAHOMA Season Overview (11-1, 8-1 Big 12): The Sooners have averaged 52 points during their seven-game winning streak as senior receiver Sterling Shepard and sophomore running back Samaje Perine complement Mayfield’s prowess. Shepard has 79 receptions for 1,201 yards and 11 touchdown catches and ranks second in school history in receptions (226) and receiving yardage (3,395) while Perine has rushed for 1,291 yards and 15 touchdowns and has 3,004 career rushing yards to join Adrian Peterson (2004-05) as the only players to top 3,000 in their first two seasons as Sooners. Oklahoma allows 20.8 points per game and boasts solid players in senior outside linebacker Eric Striker (team-high 16 tackles for losses and 7.5 sacks), junior cornerback Zack Sanchez (team-leading six interceptions), sophomore cornerback Jordan Thomas (five interceptions), junior inside linebacker Dominique Alexander (team-best 91 tackles) and senior defensive end Charles Tapper (seven sacks).

CLEMSON Season Overview (13-0, 8-0 ACC): The Tigers are hoping standout sophomore receiver Artavis Scott (84 receptions, 805 yards) will be in top shape by the bowl game after he underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair meniscus cartilage in his right knee earlier this month. Sophomore running back Wayne Gallman has been superb with 1,332 yards and 10 touchdowns and is 14 yards shy of surpassing the school mark set by Raymond Priester in 1996. Clemson allows 20.2 points per game with standout junior defensive end Shaq Lawson delivering a dominating season – he has a team-best 9.5 sacks and leads the nation with 22.5 tackles for losses – while senior middle linebacker B.J. Goodson (team-high 91 tackles), junior cornerback Condrea Tankersley (team-leading five interceptions) and junior defensive end Kevin Dodd (eight sacks) also are having strong campaigns.

UCLA Bruins vs. USC Trojans College Football Real Money Fantasy Preview 11-28-2015

The PAC 12 South division in on the line in the cross-town rivalry game as the USC Trojans will be hosting the UCLA Bruins. College football fantasy draft GMs can tune to ABC TV at 3:30PM Eastern Time on Saturday November 28th to follow the results of their roster picks.

UCLA enters this game with a record of 8-3. They showed some heart last week going into a hostile road venue at Utah and coming away with the 17-9 victory. Bruins defense has been very disappointing for much of the season with their poor ability to defend the run. They allowed about 4 yards a carry on the ground to the Utes but held Utah to only 110 yards passing. The run game for UCLA got grounded with 105 yards on 38 carries but they got just enough from their passing game to squeak out a huge win.

USC is 7-4 as they suffered a 48-28 road defeat at the Oregon Ducks last week. It broke a four game win streak for the Trojans as the dynamic passing attack by Oregon done in the Trojans. Ducks quarterback Vernon Adams threw for 407 yards and six touchdown passes. The Trojans were able to run for nearly 5 yards a carry on Oregon which is a positive to take into this game against a Bruins team weak in that area.

College Football One Day League Fantasy Picks

UCLA Bruins RB:

Paul Perkins

The Bruins senior running back has been a workhorse by averaging nearly 24 carries over his past three games. He has rushed for 1180 yards this year for 5.7 yards per carry average. He had a nice game against Washington St two weeks ago where he rushed for 121 yards on 20 carries as he averaged 6 yards per attempt.

USC Trojans WR:

JuJu Smith

Smith leads the Trojans with 68 catches for 1217 yards with ten touchdowns. He has been outstanding at home with 138 receiving yards against Arizona, 143 against Utah and 153 against Stanford scoring a touchdown reception in each game.

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Oklahoma St Cowboys

College Football Fantasy Preview 11-28-2015

The Bedlam rivalry game features the Oklahoma St Cowboys playing host to the Oklahoma Sooners. DFS GMs can tune to ABC TV at 8PM Eastern Time on Saturday November 28th to follow the results of their fantasy draft roster for one day leagues.

There is a lot at stake for this Oklahoma team that is in the playoff picture. The Sooners‘ body of work has impressed the committee and a win against the Cowboys would be another feather in their cap. The Sooners since their loss to Texas has won six straight games including a 30-29 home victory to TCU last week as they defended a two point conversion in the closing seconds to seal the win. Sooners are the third rated offense in college football as they score 44.6 points per game.

Oklahoma St is 10-1 and took a recent loss as they dropped a 45-35 home decision to Baylor to kick them out of the playoff picture at the moment. This Cowboys team is also high scoring as they push across 42.8 points per game ranking seventh best in the nation.

College Football Daily Fantasy League Picks

Oklahoma Sooners QB:

Baker Mayfield

The Sooners junior quarterback is completing 68.7% of his throws this year for 3209 yards with 33 touchdowns and five picks. He had 107 yards receiving and two touchdown throws in the win against TCU last week.

Oklahoma St Cowboys WR:

James Washington

Washington has been a big play receiver for the Cowboys as he has 45 catches for 908 yards with nine touchdowns. He is averaging 20.2 yards per catch on the season.

Oklahoma Sooners versus Baylor Bears College Football Fantasy Picks 11-14-2015

A monster matchup for fantasy college football draft managers to pick a roster from is the game between the Oklahoma Sooners and Baylor Bears. DFS can tune to ABC TV on Saturday night November 14th at 8PM Eastern Time to track the results of their one day league picks.

The past two meetings between these teams resulted in huge wins by Baylor each time. In 2013 it was Baylor with the 41-12 home victory and last year the Bears crushed the Sooners again but this time it was 48-14 at Oklahoma.

The Sooners have just one blemish on their record as the team enters play with a mark of 8-1. After their 24-17 loss to Texas the Oklahoma Sooners have flexed their muscles on the scoreboard with four straight wins and scoring no fewer than 52 points in the process. The team is sixth best from college football in total offense by averaging 549 yards per game. Last week they hosted the Iowa St Cyclones and produced a 52-16 victory. They poured it on in the second half by scoring 31 points. The offense was balanced with 405 yards passing and 279 coming from their ground game for over seven yards a carry.

Baylor has a perfect record of 8-0 on the season. They are the top offense in the league and score the most points from college football. The team averages 665 yards along with 57 points per game. Baylor last played on a Thursday night on November 5th as they earned the 31-24 victory that saw the Bears put up the least amount of points this season. Despite the low point total for the Bears they still managed 522 offensive yards and 419 threw the air. The team has a very difficult schedule to close the regular season. Following this Oklahoma game the Bears travel to Oklahoma St and TCU on a short week before closing out their regular season with a home game to Texas.

Oklahoma Sooners QB:

Baker Mayfield

The Sooners quarterback is hitting on 70% of his throws for 2812 yards with 28 touchdowns and four picks. Mayfield had a huge game against Iowa St last week by completing 74% of his throws for 342 yards with three touchdowns and no picks. He has thrown for 14 touchdowns and one pick over his past four games.

Oklahoma Sooners RB:

Samaje Perine

The Oklahoma sophomore running back has run for 806 yards on 140 carries and ten touchdowns. He is averaging 5.8 yards per attempt on the season. Three weeks ago Perine had 201 rushing yards and four carries. Last week Perine had 13 carries for 95 yards and a touchdown with a 7.3 yards per rush average.

Oklahoma Sooners WR:

Sterling Shepard

Shepard leads the Sooners with 47 catches for 826 yards with seven touchdowns. The senior wide out has seen significant action in all four years of play. He is averaging 17.6 yards per catch. He caught four balls for 94 yards and a touchdown last week in their win against Iowa St.

Baylor Bears QB:

Jarrett Stidham

The freshman quarterback is completing 77% of his passes for 750 yards with nine touchdowns and no picks. Stidham threw for 419 yards last week in the win against Kansas St with three touchdowns and nearly a 70% completion percentage. Starting quarterback Seth Russell is out for the year with a broken bone in his neck.

Baylor Bears RB:

Shock Linwood

Lindwood leads the Bears in rushing with 1046 yards on 134 carries with nine touchdowns. He is averaging 7.8 yards per carry on the season which is nearly two yards greater than his run average in 2014. Linwood has rushed for over 100 yards in five of his eight games this year.
